  • Here's another website where the spec. indicates there is a hot-shoe: http://cameracreativ.com/cameras/canon/canon-powershot-sx70-hs I saw another website where the photo of the camera had a piece ...
  • I agree Avion.  But at least it does show off the SX70, with the only photo's reportedly taken by the SX70 that I've found.   The EOS R stuff is a bonus.  : ) Ron
  • Created discussion thread Australian SX70 ad with video/photos
    Here's a link to an Australian Canon website with video/photo's taken with SX70 HS. I don't recall seeing this posted here. If it was, sorry about that. It shows zooming to first 65x and then ...
  • I found this interesting. At least shows a video/photo at full zoom. https://www.canon.com.au/cameras/powershot-sx70-hs Ron
  • I have an RX10iv and P900 (and several other "bridge cameras", and bought a P1000. I kept it two days. It's huge, and heavy. I downsized from DSLR's and big lenses 6 or 8 years ago, but was ...
  • Well, it's a very good tripod ($600+).  Rated for well over the weight of the P1000.  Part of the problem is the inadequate provisions on the P1000, given the long overhang of the lens when ...
  • I used a tripod for all tests.  I always do.  That's because I'm trying to evaluate the capabilities of the sensor and lens, not the anti-shake capability.  : )
  • I would gladly pay the $999 for a P900 with all the improvements made on the P1000.  The superior EVF, processor, build quality etc., etc. These improvements would make it a much more fun camera ...
  • Steve, I agree, that generally speaking, the RX10 is superior to the P900.  However, when shooting very distant subjects such as birds, I often have to do considerable cropping with the RX10iv, ...
  • Thanks Satyaa, for your comments. To me honest, I love taking pictures, if it's a camera I'm comfortable with.  I just love pressing that shutter button!! As much fun taking pictures as processing ...
  • I'm not sure how you can find an RX10iv for half the price of the P1000.  I just checked.  Amazon has the Sony for $1698.  If you can find one for half of a P1000, that would be a fantastic deal!
  • Augustin, Thanks for your kind words.  I agree with everything you said.  Unfortunately, I'm still kind of bummed, as I was so hoping to be able to deal with the size/weight of the P1000. Happy ...
  • Created discussion thread Sending my P1000 back
    I really, really wanted to like this camera. And indeed, there are many things to like. The beautiful EVF, rear LCD, long sharp lens, build quality, faster processer etc. However, I just can't ...
  • I certainly agree it's okay to use ISO 200. Were I not using a tripod, or the subjects were moving, I'd most definitely bump it up! : < ) Sony RX10iv at 24mm. Comparisons were shot from here. RX10i ...
  • Thanks for your very kind words Jshen808.  I know how frustrating it was, wondering how the two cameras compared, before they were released and photos starting coming in, although not much in the ...
  • All shots taken with tripod and 3 second delay. ISO 100 The photos of the Canadian geese were taken from here.   P1000 at 24mm. P1000 at 2000 mm P1000 at 3000 mm P1000 at 6000 mm P900 at 2000 mm P9 ...
  • Weather was good today so I got a number of comparison shots with the P900 and P1000.  I think I'm sold on the P1000.  The viewfinder is a dream, along with the rear screen, and a few other ...
  • Yes, I did do some post processing.  The same for both P900 and P1000.  Over the years, I've settled on batch processing with some sharpening, and "clarity" added.  I shoot with 5 cameras, and ...
  • Thanks for your comments.  Please note that it was never my intention to shoot the 24mm shots at f8. It was a mistake. Unless expecting to need much longer focal lengths, I normally carry my ...
  • No.  I don't believe it's from camera shake.  I used the 3 second delay timer for all photos, and of course taken with a sturdy tripod.
